, radio technology, even before the planning we didn't know what they had. it took us several planning opportunities and meetings to flush through some of that information and one of the biggest take aways for us, as a city we're required to have a tactical interoperatable communications plan. it describes how you interoperate in an emergency or an event within the city as well as regional partners. we don't have that with military and i think that's one of the biggest take aways, we need to really flesh out a document so we have captured who our contacts are, what technology they are going to bring to the table and start that initial planning from the get-go. we also had some technical challenges with land mobile radio. you know, we have the coverage issues, but we were stationed at the san francisco police department command van, i had some very sharp people there who were able to work through a lot of those interoperatability issues so a huge thank you to the police department and also the fire department and sheriff's department were also there able to provide us with otherality
cushioned vehicle ashore on the beach, landing helicopters at lake merced and working between us and the national guard, exercising the evacuation of casualties under the control and observation of the department of emergency management, and these are things that we can only really understand through exercise, through training and then figure out where the gaps are and what we need to do to smooth those out. i'll also reference lan wilder if i can. she said something that was pretty revealing. prior to yesterday and getting out on the beach and seeing us, her thinking was just to ride out the disaster. now she feels like she's in a position where she can do some strategic thinking and strategic planning, which is really an obligation for all of us in charge. as captain jones said earlier this morning, we do not know what this is going to look like and it's certainly not going to look like what we anticipate. but having us understand how to react and how to interact with each other will give us a basis upon which we can go forward and move hopefully very quickly to salvage what we
to use techniques that really were good ten years ago. for instance, you might go and draft a page where you use your keywords over and over and over again. ten, 15 years ago, that absolutely worked. today, two years from now, five years from now, these methods are antiquated. they do not work. the best thing to do is to focus on your contents. content king. >> george gill, ceo and founder of gims solutions management shared the importance of using analytics to focus limited resources on what actually works. >> if i am going to do search engine op tim zation to drive traffic to my site, what's going to be the one may trick that's going to prove that this is working to me? then you want to go into analytics and figure out how you can measure that. never do a thing online unless you are measuring it. if you are going to spend one penny and you are not measuring it, you are in the right place, las vegas. you might as well gamble. >> being intentional about everything you do online is also something mark senacola, president and ceo of banner view.com stresses. >> it is not just about digital
participation from city, civilian agencies from all around the region and all of us our fabulous united states military, the coast guard has been fabulous in providing assets to protect everybody out on the bay. it is one heck of a logistics program to get this whole program started and here we are the culmination of nearly a year of planning. we've had exercises, we've had lots of meetings down in san francisco up at the marines memorial, this is a fabulous program, we had a great medical exchange yesterday. senior leaders seminar third year in a row has gotten a lot of attention. we have a lot of new people who haven't been here for the past couple years, we have a lot of people who have been here for the last 3 years, and one of the major consistent people who has been behind this whole program is the chairman of the san francisco fleet week association, general -- major general mike myers who i'm going to ask to come up and make is remarks. >> thank you, lewis. when i accepted the responsibilities for organizing san francisco's fleet week, the guidance given to me by our honorary co-c

at her credibility on these things. and that was so dramatic that we don't like people to lie to us. this is about as close as a presidential candidate obama, looking to let democrats come to say she lied to us. i think that undermines what is going on. who else is pushing it is important. if you have a candidate who is in sioux falls, south dakota and they've been on the campaign trail all day, they're exhausted. they've made 12 different stops and to be here in oklahoma city, we kind of pass that off and say doesn't make a great deal of difference who they are or what they think they are at the appointed time. >> host: gary hart. >> guest: okay, gary hart created the original set of challenging people in the media. i think most people in the media knew that he ran around a bit, but rather than just letting it go, we have to remember we are out of time with the media to look into that so carefully. there is a backstage area. one of the problems we have today's politicians have no backstage area. whatever they do, wherever it is as real as that. ballot to be covered. that wasn't the

favorite lines mike just used is this measure is about consolidating from 8 reservoirs to 7. another way to say that is to say this is about draining one of them, the hetch hetchy valley. have other studies said this is feasible? sure, just like tearing down city hall or knocking down the golden gate bridge, that's possible but not feasible. we're not going to spend 3 billion dollars to tear down the hetch hetchy dam. let's not forget, we are also stewards for two dozen cities in the peninsula. over 2 million californians benefit from the foresight of our forefathers almost 100 years ago in building hetch hetchy. while the rest of the state is tying themselves up in knots trying to figure out where to get their water. not only did we have the type of water storage hetch hetchy provides, not only today but in the future, we are in a solid place. and to spend this kind of money, and let's just talk about the $8 million dollars, i think that's one thing we can agree on. this calls for us to spend $8 million dollars. in my own district, out at like merced, we're taking that amount of

. as i look back to my experience with the 2003-2007 fires, the one that stands out to me is the use and integration of helicopters. i can remember after the 2003 helicopters doing a field hearing with duncan hunter about the integration of helicopters and how better to integrate them. there's been a lot of discussion about that but do you feel we're ready this year and we are able to integrate those capabilities not only from a command control perspective but from a communications perspective for this fire season? anyone want to elaborate on that? >> can you hear me? okay, perfect. yes, we feel we're confident that we have, the bottom line is any aviator knows safety is paramount. we greatly respect navy, marine corps and guard safety policy. cal fire has an aviation policy as well. we work cooperatively with the agencies here at the table to ensure when we are engaged in an aerial fire fighting event we are working within each other's policies. we have trained in a work around, we can do close air support with navy and marine corps aircraft, with the current system we have.
. there are no government requirements for us to understand these chemicals. we have a lot of information about some of them. most of them have never been -- the combined mixtures of a developing teenager saying day after day year after year. there is a lot we don't know. what do know there is a tremendous amount of scientific evidence that showing low doses of chemical exposures can interfere with hormones, change the way our genomes for diseases that come down the long. most important time of development in the womb, teenagers developing. we also know that disease chronic disease is meaning chemicals are on the rise, breast cancers. who knows a young cancer or family member that has breast cancer, infertilities, testicular cancer. there is a lot of evidence showing environmental pollutants are part of the reason. so we see that there is a lot of cause for concerns and the trends um, cause us to look at these chemicals and say what is going on here. we know from the science that chemicals are ending up where they are not supposed to be and that is inside of our bodies. scientists can measure the chemicals
because it allows us to demonstrate all of the different companies going on here. in fact,, we have a website that i want to drive everybody to that will explain and list all of the activities for innovation month. and that is innovatesf.com if you go to that website, you will learn of all the activities. we have joined with with the summit team and ability to have these meetings and these conferences in a festival kind of way throughout the month. >> think of open cosf as open tech in san francisco. people sign up on the website and they will get to go to open house at any tech company we're signing up probably 40-50 companies. anybody can walk into zinga? >> you have to sign up, because we can't have too many people, but it's a way of people in san francisco -- >> it's a festival? >> to go visit the actual company. >> that is great. no way, not that i have anything to do with tech crunch anymore, but no way i would want people randomly walking into tech crunch, . >> it's a great open house and to kick it off, we have got a start-up map that we're launching. >> we have a

general. when it comes to robocalls, indiana as another unique experience. we have banned the use of auto- dialers since 1988 recognizing the growing opportunities for scams. we have even banned the political calls. that has engaged a number of legal challenges, as you might have guessed. it has been successful up through the courts and the supreme court of india and that successfully arguing that the rights to privacy trump a political free speech to blast out tens of thousands of calls to hoosiers. it is subject to a federal case we want at the district court that is now in the seventh circuit court of appeals. i think there is opportunities there that indiana and other states have shown to have stricter do not call and no boat rolled -- and no robocalling options. some of the current work will again be subject to additional challenges and we look forward to many more days in court.

are obviously pretty busy in an ongoing tactical situation and don't have time to call us at the moment, but i can tell you a little bit about our community, if you're interested. >> i am, of course, and i was just going to say that it's a given they wouldn't necessarily call you first, but do, tell us about the community. >> well, the community is probably one of the more aft affluent community suburbs in the area. it's a highly desired place to live with great schools, et cetera. where the shooting took place is in a large retail commercial corridor. in fact, it's probably one of the largest in southeast wisconsin, so the city of brookfield population is about 38,000, but with this commercial corridor, we almost triple that in population in daytime hours with transients who come to shop in the area and so forth. so although we are typical sleepy suburban area because of the commercial corridor, it invites in a lot of other people which has been to the benefit of the community but then also it, you know, creates situations like this. not to say that this happens on a regular basis, because ce
fear the government is responsible. they use every opportunity to insult us. >> turkey's sunni prime minister called the alawis his -- >> there is only one place for muslims to go and pray. that is the mosque. i don't have anything against their cultural centers. they create divisions in society. >> the idea of men and women dancing together is unimaginable to some muslims. they sing songs and recite poetry while worshiping. their perspective is humanistic and less dogmatic. they worship the son-in-law of the profit mohammad. men and women are symbolically equal, which they show by watching each other's hands. -- washing each other's hands. >> the creator made a man and woman out of a drop of water. if that is how he sough why shouldn't reat them equally? >> for sunnis, such an immense amount to heresy. they generally keep their traditions and songs to themselves. the syrian dictator is part of a related sect. >> if there is a dictatorship, the people should get rid of it. it is not the business of oth cotrieso get involved. we have seen what has happened in the so-called arab spring
a blank stare. then they got one. you used it. let's do our best. how are you disrupting the real estate industry? >> well, there is a few things we do. we publish all the information so we got access to the databases that real estate agents use and put it all online so consumers can see it, and then we hired our own real estate agents and paid them to put the customer first. >> they are your employees. we are not paying them a commission. >> that's the crazy part. we started as a software company and decided that if we really wanted to change the game, we had to hire our own agents, so today we have 300 or 400 agents all across the country and the idea is that they're paid a customer satisfaction bonus so that if you're happy, they make money, and if you're not, they don't. that allows us not only to have the digital part of the experience be really revolutionary but also the service part. the question we had when we starred the business, i am not the founder, i am just the ceo, but when we had to decide what we wanted to do with this business, we could turn over leads to traditional re

ways, one, he'll limit the tax breaks. he'll spur economic growth because people can use that money that they'll save this taxes. it's not entirely clear how much economic growth that will produce. what is clear is that the measly 1.3% of economic growth that they achieved in the second quarter this year isn't enough to make up for the romney shortfall, and with the u.s. economy forecasted to grow by about 3% in 2013 and 2014, romney's plan, as attractive as it sounds, is in doubt. kevin hasseth is an economic adviser. kevin, romney's plan seems to assume that the simple act of lowering taxes will generate enough growth to raise the revenue to pay for the steep cost of those cuts. a lot of economists disagree with that notion, the classic chicken and egg scenario. i spoke with secretary larry m sumners a few weeks ago and he can't get it to work, either. >> the reality is that every expert that's looked at it has found that cutting taxes by 20% costs $5 trillion. >> let's just get down to this. we understand this there will be certain revenues that will come in, there will be cert

was the identification of the lead federal agency for us. it was u.s. aid. what they provided for us was an avenue for funding. for direct contact with the government of japan. direct contact with the u.s. embassy. what that does, it helps to establish policy and guidance. for those who are looking at ways to now think of these sorts of operations as case studies in which you can test your ideas with the state of california and how you would respond, i would strongly endorsed that you look at policy and guidance. that is something that cannot be assumed away. as you go from the local level to the municipal level, then the state level, and where you plug in with the federal government, this for assumption that we are on the same page and working off the same set of standards is something on which i reach out. to the extent that we were dealing with a contaminated, radiological environment, it was important to have a nuclear regulatory commission. it plugged into the washington, dc environment. the technical expertise that resided in the department of energy. working closely with the government of j
of preparation. so the word is getting out. seattle invited us to come up and talk to them about incorporating that, this program, into their fleet week. so the word is getting out. i'd like to tell you just a story that i've told before to some of you but it relates very much to the next panel that we have here. back in april of 1992, i was commanding the first marine division and we had been to the gulf war and we had a lot of parades and we were feeling pretty good about things and on 30 april, 1992, the results of the rodney king trial were announced. two days later, we found the first marine division deployed to compton and watts and one of the most horrific sights i'd ever seen. it was the largest riot in u.s. history. 3,000 people were injured, 60 people were killed, and we actually ended up at one point in time having to use live ammunition. but once we did, the bloods and the krips and the gangs there realized we were serious. the reason we got involved is because they learned none of the police departments within los angeles could talk to each other on their communications gear.
thoughts on this particular program and on this mission because it is going to take all of us if the big one happens. so, if i can start with you, vice admiral beaman, if there is anything you'd like to impart, sir. >> actually, i have 37 things i'd like to talk about, but knowing we are the last thing between you and the refreshments in the back, i'll limit it to one. and michelle gedess brought it up earlier today. it's been characterized a couple different ways. vice admiral breckenridge asked if there are any gaps that we've discovered. i would say in a denied environment, it's something we in the military are looking and training to on a daily basis. but in terms of communications, in a denied environment -- and it's not through any particular act that's denying us other than whatever destruction is a resultant of the disaster that hit. and i think that's where we really have work to do. i think next year's table top exercise, if it addressed that or the drill itself went after that, i think we would stand to learn a lot. some of it wouldn't be pleasant, but better to learn it now t
